31. Introduction to Journal of Modern Optics Special Issue on Single Photon: Sources, Detectors, Applications and Measurement Methods
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 1/20/2007
Authors: J Cheung, Alan L Migdall, Stefania Castelletto
Abstract: In October 2005, a 2-day follow up workshop, Single photon: sources, detectors, applications and measurement methods, was held at the NPL (National Physical Laboratory, UK). The focus for this workshop was to report on the key developments since the ...

32. Joint spectral distribution of a periodically poled KTP source for quantum information applications
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 7/23/2010
Authors: Thomas Gerrits, Burm Baek, Martin J Stevens, Tracy S. Clement, Sae Woo Nam, Robert Hadfield, Ryan Bennink, Warren Grice, Sander N. Dorenbos, Tony Zijlstra, Teun Klapwijk, Val Zwiller
Abstract: We present our experimental results obtained from a periodically poled KTP (pp-KTP) crystal designed to produce a pure squeezed vacuum near 1550 nm. A pure squeezed vacuum in a single mode is one of the building blocks towards high fidelity optical ...

33. Low-noise chip-based frequency conversion by four-wave-mixing Bragg scattering in SiNx waveguides
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 7/15/2012
Authors: Imad (Imad) Agha, Marcelo Ishihara Davanco, Bryce Thurston, Kartik A Srinivasan

34. M-ary state phase-shift keying discrimination below the homodyne limit
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 12/22/2011
Authors: Francisco Elohim Becerra Chavez, Jingyun Fan, Gerald Baumgartner, Sergey V Polyakov, Julius Goldhar, Jonathan Kosloski, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: We investigate a strategy for M-ary discrimination of nonorthogonal phase states with error rates below the homodyne limit. This strategy uses feed forward to update a reference field and Signal nulling for the state discriminati ...

35. Manipulating the Color and Shape of Single Photons
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 11/1/2012
Authors: Michael G. Raymer, Kartik A Srinivasan

36. Measuring high-order coherences of chaotic and coherent optical states
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 8/24/2009
Authors: Martin J Stevens, Burm Baek, Eric Dauler, Andrew J. Kerman, Richard J. Molnar, Scott A. Hamilton, Karl Berggren, Richard P Mirin, Sae Woo Nam
Abstract: We demonstrate a new approach to measuring high-order temporal coherences that uses a four-element superconducting nanowire single-photon detector (SNSPD) in which four independent, single-photon-sensitive elements are interleaved over a single spati ...

37. Measuring intensity correlations with a two-element superconducting nanowire single-photon detector
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 11/24/2008
Authors: Eric Dauler, Martin J Stevens, Burm Baek, Richard J. Molnar, Scott A. Hamilton, Richard P Mirin, Sae Woo Nam, Karl Berggren
Abstract: Second-order intensity correlation measurements were made using a two-element superconducting nanowire single photon detector (SNSPD) without the need for an optical beam splitter. This approach can be used to obtain a 50-ps full width at half maximu ...

38. Microstructure fiber-based source of photonic entanglement
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 11/1/2009
Authors: Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall, Jun Chen, Elizabeth Anne Goldschmidt, Alexander E. Ling
Abstract: We review the development of photonic entanglement via four-wave mixing in microstructure fiber

39. Migdall Responds
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 5/1/1999
Author: Alan L Migdall
Abstract: I thank Duane Jaecks for pointing out earlier origins of the first of the correlated photon metrology applications described in my article - absolute detector quantum efficiency. The work in these early references is helpful in putting the technique ...

40. Migdall Responds II: More Correlated Photon Metrology History
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 11/1/1999
Author: Alan L Migdall
Abstract: I appreciate the comments of Mike Gruntman (Sept., page 80) concerning the history of using correlated pairs of particles(photons) to determine absolute detector quantum efficiencies. Unfortunately there is an overall misunderstanding of the techniqu ...
